My role as Online Content Director involved the management and hands-on production of the station's web content and digital presence. This involved setup, training, and execution within the sphere of our blogs, video, podcasts, special event microsites, and contesting. I was specifically tasked with growing our presence on YouTube and helping to design and implement a social media strategy for Facebook, Twitter, and mobile platforms. We experienced a 1000% increase in our YouTube views, from under 25k views per month to over a quarter of a million per month. Our Facebook Fanbase grew from below 10k to over 50k in one year, and our mobile consumption was raised sigificantly with the help of a smartphone app, a text messaging program, and targeted advertising.
Mike FM came with a very different set of challenges than WAAF. Mike FM was a "Jack" format station with no on-air personalities; the site needed to assume the personality of the radio station without the aid of individuals to make that happen. Staff was limited, as was access to celebrities, a key traffic driver at WAAF. Through a combination of social media strategy, user generated content, and contesting, we managed to bring Mike's digital presence to life, resulting in doubled unique visitors per month and a quadrupling of time spent on the site per visitor. Mike FM has recently gone off-air and has been replaced by WEEI-FM, so this website is no longer publicly available.
Green Power Girl is a Hawaii-based educational initiative focused on educating children about the environment and related issues. This is a wordpress site which was launched with a fast deadline for a TED Talk in Honolulu.

Nurse-Recruiter is an online job portal for nurses, similar to Monster.com but specialized. My duties have included the design and implementation of an intranet, and redevelopment of web software from PERL into PHP. I have also rewritten most of the content on the site for SEO value, and increased total web visitors as well as goal conversions by almost 100% in 10 months. This term of employment has more or less ended due to a partnership with a larger firm who took over the development of the site.
